Former USC QB gets green light to play for Dogs

Ruling could heat up UGA QB battle

The NCAA has granted a waiver for JT Daniels, a quarterback from the University of Southern California who transferred to the University of Georgia. The decision means Daniels could suit up for the Dogs this fall.

From Chip Towers, AJC…

Daniels, a former starter at USC who transferred to UGA this summer, announced via social media that the NCAA approved his special-circumstances waiver, and therefore he will be eligible to play for the Bulldogs right away.

That definitely adds a layer of intrigue to preseason camp, if and when it ever begins. After losing junior Jake Fromm to the NFL draft, the Bulldogs won the sweepstakes to land former Wake Forest starter Jamie Newman as a graduate transfer. The 6-foot-4, 230-pound Newman has been considered a virtual lock to take over at quarterback ever since.
